Freshman and New Student Orientation

Dear Rising Freshman and/or New SHS Student,

We hope you have had (and are having) a wonderful summer!  We’re enjoying our summer, as well, but we’re excited that you’ll be joining us this Fall.

Transitioning to a new school or into high school can be a stressful experience, but we want to make your transition to SHS as smooth as possible.  Therefore, we are inviting you and your family to join us for Freshman and New Student Orientation on Tuesday, August 29at 7:00 pm in the SHS Auditorium.

This event is sponsored by our PTSA.  After a brief welcome from a PTSA representative, students and parents will have an opportunity to learn about SHS procedures and expectations.  Then, while parents stay for a special parent orientation and Q&A session, students will go to each of their classes to meet teachers and familiarize themselves with the building.

Please bring your schedule with you when you attend.  Schedules will be available to be picked up at the following Pre-Pay Fee Days:

  • August 22 from 8:00-12:00
  • August 23 from 2:00-5:00
  • August 29 from 2:00-6:00

We hope you will attend this evening.  Until then, if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

Enjoy the remainder of your summer vacation, and we’ll see you on the 29th!
